Good Sacrifice

November 18

Daily Bible Reading: Hebrews 13

Verse of the Day: Hebrews 13:15 – “Through him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which make confession to his name.”

The Old Testament animal sacrifices have been done away with by the once-for-all sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Yet, as New Testament believers we are still challenged to bring sacrifices to God. This time the sacrifices are praise and our lives (Romans 12:1,2). God wants living sacrifices that proclaim praise and worship. 

The word sacrifice carries with it the meaning of giving up something highly valued for the sake of something else considered to have a greater value or claim. So, our sacrifice is giving up ourselves (which we highly value) to proclaim praise and worship of Jesus. Today, see how often you can give Him praise in your circumstances and activities.

Prayer: Jesus, I give all praise to You today. I seek to see You in all events in my life today. You are worthy of all my honor and admiration. Thank You for all You have done.
